    gp800r mystery oil leak

    okay guys i got an oil leak. there water in the bottom of the hull was white and there was a good ring of oil around the inside of the hull and on the bottom. so i check all the oil lines and all were mounted and i thought maybe one had a pin hole and check them good.

    there was quite a bit of oil in the air box but didn't seem to have to be leaking down into the hull. the plugs were drenched with oil when i pulled them out there was oil dripping off of them.

    for the life of me i cant figure out where its coming from i checked every thing and then checked it again.

    check the exhaust pipe. They usually will let go when getting older. Its where the exhaust manifold mets the u pipe. Feel around and see if you get oil on your hand

    well i went and checked around the exhuast the u pipe seemed okay back by the mid wall there seemed to be a build up of oil on that. but the starter seemed to have a lot of oil on it about the same hue as the oil in the bottom of the hull. it looks like the power valve by the gas tank has oil seeping out of this is that a possibility if it was sealed up right? any one ever have this happen to them?

    i dont know if this helps but maybe the oil pump is failing and pumping to much?? or maybe the powervavle covers are lose and/or gasket is shot? chaeck that and check the torque when lossening the bolts put loctite on the bolts when you reinstall
